Majors: Geology/Sustainability and Technology Minors
Fluent Languages: English
Study Abroad: Rome, Florence and Venice, Italy SP'23
Bio: I first traveled outside the country for my 16th birthday, to Finland, France, and Belgium. I absolutely fell in love with experiencing different countries and learning about different cultures, and decided then that I wanted to study abroad in college. But besides my love of traveling, I also love to paint and be outside to ski, hike, or hang out with my friends at the beach. Some things I am involved with on campus include the Geology and Women in STEM Clubs! 

Nick Thelen

Study Abroad Mentor

Majors: French, Global and International Studies
Fluent Languages: English, French
Study Abroad: Paris, France F'23 | Rome, Florence & Venice, Italy Quarter Course SP'23
Bio: I'm a junior at SUNY Oswego currently studying abroad in Paris, taking coursework at the Sorbonne University. This is my second experience with an International and Education Abroad program, having recently done a quarter course to Italy in the Spring 23’ semester. Getting the chance to explore new cultures has been a rewarding experience that I hope to share with prospective students considering going abroad! In my free time, I enjoy biking, cooking, and playing the violin, as well as spending time with my friends. My professional goals are to become a French teacher and possibly work abroad in foreign relations.
